Job Interview tomorrow

I've got a job interview tomorrow.

It's an interview to rank applicants who passed the test I took a couple of weeks ago. Once the list has been ranked, there are three vacancies to fill. I'm not sure how the three departments are filling their positions. Will the same top three candidates interview for all three departments? Or will departments choose from a larger top-rank list?

The interview will be a "panel" interview with one or more of the panel being people from completely outside our organization. And since it is hard to know which position a candidate will actually compete for, it's hard to research and target your answers directly. I'm studying the job description and thinking about my qualifications in a general sense, how they adapt to various applications.

Anyway - I'm trying to be "up" for my interview tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Concentrate on your "elevator pitch" about the brand that is you. There are a million reasons why you're an asset to any team so you need to figure out how you'd pitch them in a 10 second elevator ride. You've got this. Have a good time with it! xo

Since I'm a day late to this party I will guess that you were fabulous and instead of "good luck" I'll say "great job!" Hope it all went well.

All the best (though this may be late) but I am sure you did well :-)

Coming in a bit late to wish you the very best -- and hand you a lovely bouquet of those flowers!

Panel interviews are considered the most intimidating situation for any applicant. Imagine people hurling questions at you, one after another. Wouldn't that be kind of scary? So, when you are going to be in a panel interview, remember to research about all the possible questions that may come out during the interview and rehearse your answers. Also, it’s important that you look them in the eye as you answer each question.
